Is there any thing that excludes .357 handguns?

For all big and trophy game species, legal firearms also include any cartridge of at least .35 caliber and at least 1.5 inches in overall length, or a cartridge that generally delivers 500 foot-pounds of impact at 100 yards.
I measured a bunch of 357s, my reloads and factory rounds, the make the 1.5 inch overall length it calls for.

A normal 357 wont develop 500 ft lbs at 100 yard out of a revolver, but you'll notice the link says OR not And.

I figure they realize (rightly so) that a hand gun hunter isn't going to be shooting at 100 yards anyway.
